Asamoah Gyan reveals how his move to Manchester City hit a snag due to injury
The Black Stars striker has disclosed that he almost joined Manchester City, hadn’t been an injury
Asamoah joined Sunderland from Italian side Udinese after the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, yet he has revealed that he would have played in the English Premier League two years earlier with Manchester City, hadn’t been an injury.
"I had a little injury before CAN 2008, but it I wanted to play because it was my first AFCON," Gyan stated on Adom FM's 'Fire for Fire'.
"I had a contract from Manchester City before the tournament but lost it because I had a surgery after CAN 2008 that kept me out for six months."
Gyan has had stints with clubs such as Udinese, Sunderland, Al Ain, Shanghai SIPG, Al Ahly Dubai and he is currently plying his trade in the Turkish topflight league with Kayserispor.
